Richard Lighthouse


the best kind of love
spreads like      early sun
on (twisted) sheets
peering secretly      thru blinds,
glistening on sweet skin.

the best kind of      love
urges on
stays      unsettled
remains like delicious
scents dangling
in air.

she emerges from the
bathroom like      the best
kind of love
dripping wet
wrapped in warm      towels
and grinning      like a child.
